okay, so i know that SOME of you do listen to other music besides the GD, and anyway, i've had this instrumental track on a tape i made a zillion years ago, and i never have been able to figure out the artist or the title of this piece, and so i thought i'd throw it out here on the forum, give a link to the piece with the hope that someone might recognize just exactly what this instrumental piece is; any help very much appreciated!

Oh man, you're killin me !! It's so familiar, but I can't quite place it. At first I thought the Beatles, but I have a feeling it's Zeppelin: maybe "In The Light" or "In My Time Of Dying" ????????? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I'm not familiar with Harry Manx. It sounds a bit like Tabla Beat Science to me...

It sounds like Harry Manx playing the intro to "Within You & Without You" I have a few of his CD's but don't recognize the particular cut. Harry Manx is a great musician. Harry plays slide guitar and the Indian instrument called a Veena, which he plays on this particular track. Check out his album "Wise and Otherwise" sometime. Great stuff.
It's definitely Harry Manx though. No one else sounds like he does.

I agree, it is Harry Manx.

Here is a good example of his playing:

Good tunes; I would like to see him live someday.

jw-dan, veblen ... two for Harry Manx, thanks for taking the time to listen, i'll check out Manx's stuff and see if i can locate the same

edit: wow, just checked out that youtube link that veblen posted, and i agree, almost certainly Harry Manx; what an interesting sound, gotta check out his material for sure; thank you so much for your help!

edit#2: okay, i just checked out the Harry Manx discography, and i'm thinking that since his first release was 2001, then perhaps what i have is not Manx, given that i took it off of a cassette tape i put together in early 1993

Arbuthnot: In another time's forgotten space I would say it is something from "Pink Floyd." Alan Parsons produced "The Dark Side of the Moon" ...eventually creating the "Alan Parsons Project" with Eric Woolfson -- another Edgar Allan Poe freak. == which is of absolutely no value to your inquiry, however it does make me wonder if Phil got the idea for the Baltimore "Raven Space" from these two guy's collaboration.

Unfortunately for Parsons, his instrumental, "Sirius," was hijacked by the Chicago Bulls as the soundtrack used for those annoying pre-game player introductions. Sort of like a "Ripple" ringtone, I guess.

Listening for the secret, searching for the sound,

thanks AshesRising, pretty sure it's not Floyd, doesn't really have the Floyd feel if you know what i mean, however, i'll keep searching for the sound myself...

dunno, Arb. Sounds like an interlude during some kind of Asian Indian music? I'm hearing a dobro and a synth sustaining, but no Indian instrument strings. I kept waiting to hear a sitar or something. Thought maybe John McLaughlin and his Mahavishnu Orchestra was gonna chime in.

Being a hardcore dobro lover myself, I couldn't help my brain-knee-jerk --- Jerry Douglas. This man can play dobro. I thought I'd toss you a sweet Jerry Douglas moment from LMA:

Birdland performed at Telluride Bluegrass Festival 1999 by String Cheese Incident
Jerry Douglas sits in with dobro. Jerry finds a groove in there with the guitarist and gets funky on dobro with him. Damn nice. Another LMA-type "best kept secret moment."

Tip for you music lovers searching here on LMA: USE the advanced search FORM on here. BEST WAY to find everything YOU are LOOKING for!!! Plug in the band name ("collection"). and, Plug in the exact date if you know the exact date -- fastest, best way to find your show.

Use the "any field" section for venue or city names. Or muscian's names. I found Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Mark O'Conner, Vassar Clements, Bela Fleck and many others all over the place here, sitting in with my favorite bands.

The date range field works great searching Dead shows.

example for you to Search:
any field = Telluride
collection = String Cheese Incident

then do "sort by date" on the webpage hit-list.

NoiseCollector had some good in-depth tips on how to find anything.

well, Monte, your guess is a good as mine, and yet, it's all good; if there were lyrics to the piece, then a quick google search would've done the trick; i wonder if in future there will be some sort of web search engine where you can plug in a sample of a song and it will come up with an exact match ... now, that would be something! thanks for the input

nice track. i have lots of this kind of guitar raag stuff but don't recognize this. it could be cooder as it sounds a bit like the album that he did with vishwa mohan bhatt- the inventor of the mohan veena that manx also plays- but it is not from that album. maybe some other bhatt album?
